Petition o' the day

Someone's been watching 'The Dirty Dozen':

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Send criminals to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan etc", and continues, "The govermnent and justice system is failing us by not sending criminals to jail for crimes they have comitted and so putting them back into society to offend again because the jails are full. Why allow your Tax to go towards the keep of some of the criminals that are in Prison, let them earn a living instead. Why not make them serve their Country? Football Hooligans love to fight so let them by sending them to help our Troops in Iraq etc...It will probably make real decent Men/Women out of them. It would also be beneficial to the likes of Burglars, Rapists, Muggers, Drug Dealers, Pimps, and your ever annoying ASBO's and many more that don't like to play by rules that we all do called Law and Order. Keep the prison places then for the Dangerous Criminals".

And that would be a great way of increasing war crimes, would it not? What concerns me is that the petitioner does not seem to regard rapists as being 'dangerous criminals'.

Talking of finding sensible uses to which to put criminals, I am reminded of when General Zia Ul Haq of Pakistan (funny how often he crops up in this blog!)introduced Sharia Law there. Rather than adding a professional flogger to the public payroll (aka the Gordon solution) he opted instead to give day release on flogging days to specially-selected 'certified' sadists from the Pakistani prison system. He knew they'd enjoy the work, perform it with great enthusiasm and skill _ and all for no pay!

Shows some forward thinking on the moustachioed one's part, doesn't it?
